THIS IS THE SUB-HOLDING THAT OWNS THE AGRICULTURAL BIOMASS AND LIVESTOCK MANURE BIOGAS PLANTS AND THE RELATED INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITIES THAT COME UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE BRITISH FUND AND ALLOWS LADURNER AMBIENTE TO FREE UP RESOURCES TO FOCUS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES FOR OTHER FRACTIONS
BOLZANO – Ladurner Ambiente, an industrial holding company in the environmental sector, and Ladurner Group, the Ladurner family’s holding company, have sold their entire stake in the share capital of Enerfarm to the English closed-end fund Equitix.
Enerfarm is the sub-holding company founded by Ladurner Ambiente in 2006 and operating in the agricultural sector to develop initiatives for the production of electricity from biogas through the valorisation of agricultural biomass and livestock manure, which since 2018 has also embarked on a development path to actively contribute to sustainable and healthy agriculture by entering into the production of 100% organic fertilisers of exclusively agricultural origin.
Enerfarm currently controls five companies owning biogas plants for the production of electricity, which will be converted into biomethane production in Lombardy and Veneto, and one company owning a fertiliser production plant in Lombardy, Fertilfarm.
Ladurner Ambiente is a leading provider of solutions in the environmental field, urban waste collection and treatment technologies, renewable energy production and environmental remediation. In order to free up resources to focus on the development of technologies for the treatment of other fractions, such as the treatment of sewage sludge with the production of phosphorus, which on the scale of primary needs ranks first in Italy, Ladurner Ambiente has decided to divest all assets in anaerobic digestion and biogas/biomethane production, a process that began in 2019 with the sale of the treatment plants for the wet fraction of municipal waste to the Snam Group and that confirms Ladurner’s industrial vocation in the so-called B. O.T. (build, operate and transfer), i.e. the construction, operation and transfer of plant infrastructures in the environmental and circular economy sector.
The sale and acquisition activity was managed as financial advisor by La Finanziaria Trentina, while for the legal part Ladurner Ambiente and Ladurner Group were assisted by the LMCR firm of Milan. The closed-end fund Equitix was assisted by DLA Piper, also of Milan.
